Permit Time! Pesca Maya, Ascension Bay, Mexico

Over the past 25 years, more of our anglers have landed permit on the fly in Mexico’s beautiful Bahia de la Ascension than all our other permit destinations combined! We have our theories, but the fact remains, Ascension Bay permit will eat a fly more readily than Trachinotus falcatus in any other fishery we’ve experienced. The peak months for this fishery are just around the corner!

As a bonus, April sees the arrival of the large migratory tarpon swelling the ranks of resident juvenile fish right through the summer and fall months. Add to this a prolific bonefishery, abundant (often very big) snook, and a myriad of other species on the flats including mutton snappers, cudas, ladyfish, even the occasional triple tail – you’ll understand why Ascension Bay is not only considered one of the premier flats destinations, it is most likely the Grand Slam Capital of the World!

We’ve booked the venerable Pesca Maya for their entire 21 years of operation, and it remains one of our favorite lodge operations on the Yucatan Peninsula. The lodge features a seasoned staff of guides (who’ve grown up on the Bay and know it better than anyone), great food, spacious / comfortable air conditioned rooms with queen beds and ensuite baths with walk-in showers, and an attentive staff steeped in Mayan hospitality who are committed to your utmost enjoyment.

There are still openings in the Prime Time April & May months, and if you can stand to wait, Pesca Maya’s 20% summer discount kicks in June 15th! Fabulous fishing can be had during the lightly fished summer months! Call today to make your reservation!
